When we closed the street to traffic it was to develop tourism, but I believe that the reason it did not succeed was competition between Bunratty Castle and King John’s – we should have a separate management.“Speculators got buildings on the street for half nothing but we must now develop the street and we need to consult with the businesses and let them know of our plans”.Meanwhile, Mr Prendergast revealed they were working with the Shannon Foynes Port Company to get people off the ships that berth there, to visit Limerick city, and also get visitors from Cork Harbour to Limerick – in Belfast, they bring in 100,000 visitors annually from cruisers.“The Irish naval vessel, the LE Eithne, has told us they love coming to Limerick because the port is in the middle of the city – Cllr Jim Long is right in his suggestion that ships could sail into and berth in Limerick Docks”.
